The Philadelphia Eagles re-signed Justin Hamilton to their practice squad on Friday, according to an official announcement from the team.

Hamilton was released by the Eagles earlier this week when Philadelphia cut him in order to make room for practice squad Nate Sudfeld on the 53-man roster. The Indianapolis Colts — who recently put Andrew Luck on injured reserve — wanted to sign Sudfeld away from Philly so the Eagles had to promote him.

Hamilton wasn’t a tough cut because he was a healthy scratch at this point anyway. Now he’s back on the practice squad, which is where he started the season.

Hamilton played in three games with Philly after being called up to the main roster. In 44 defensive snaps played, Hamilton logged two assisted tackles and 0.5 sack.
